The Maladaptive Expressions & Features of Perfectionism Research Lab predominantly examines maladaptive expressions and features of perfectionism (e.g., personality, interpersonal style) and their implications for interpersonal functioning (e.g., intimacy, self-disclosure, help-seeking). A historically quantitative lab, we are moving into use of mixed method approaches in our work as well. We are also focused on the development of research identity (RI) in Master's level counselors-in-training.

Research Team

Lab members represent diverse academic and cultural backgrounds, giving our research a significant richness of perspective and and training. We come from many states in the US and other countries including Pakistan and China.
